that we have an election, toward the middle to the end of the summer when the election kicks off in earnest, they virtually stop doing audits and work almost completely on the public financing program, which is sort of an auditing process in itself. because with public finance candidates, you're not just looking at contributions after the fact, you're also monitoring all the ones that are coming in. so, it's almost like a double audit because, of course, it's public money so we treat it very carefully. and, to be honest, although we have four auditors and they're all excellent people, we can really use five, perhaps even six, you know. some day, really, we ought to be able to audit all committees and not just public finance committees and a handful of others. we just don't have any other resources to do that. >> and in addition to what the what director sinclair said, during the election season, the auditors very closely review notifications from candidates as to which threshold they're at in terms of fund-raising and spending. and they also review third-party spending and track
